I've had so many tests done this year and I've talked to all the techs and they seem to love their job. I'm going to look into the schools in this area and see what kind of waiting lists there are. The nursing program is 2-3 years depending on the school. It's silly, you have to take all your pre reqs then you sit around and wait for years. I'll forget everything by the time I start, lol.
Anyway, it's just something I've been thinking about
lately. I think the patient exposure is a little less as a tech, and I'm speaking strictly about
my immune system in regards to all the sick people here. It looks like I'll be on immuno suppressant type drugs for the rest of my life, I'm starting to worry about
that aspect of the nursing.
I'm not sure what the difference is in wages, I'll have to ask around about
that. If I have another 2 or 3 years of schooling on top of the waiting period (depending on the school) I may want to make sure I get the most bucks for the bang, lol.
